Remember when you were 5 years old? When a cardboard box was a fort? When our beds became lifeboats, providing our only protection from the shark-infested waters of our bedroom? When we could envision our achievements in vivid detail – years before their fulfillment? Remember when we had a virtually unlimited capacity to dream? What happened?
As we grew up, “reality” set in. We couldn’t be an astronaut, and a firefighter, and a doctor, and own our own ice cream store. We left our childish fantasies behind in our pursuit of what we believed would make us happy.
King Solomon once wrote, “Where there is no vision, the people perish.” When we suppress our capacity to dream, our lives become unfocused. An unseen target cannot be hit. Sadly, many people aim at nothing in life and hit it with an amazing degree of accuracy.
Are the dreams gone? Can they be rekindled? The FreedomRocks vision statement is: To combine leading-edge technology with the power of a dream to create the most compelling opportunity in the financial world.
In short, FreedomRocks is the dream machine.
Since we began in July 2002, we’ve touched the lives of thousands of people around the world, from every walk of life, who were tired of shrinking their dreams to match their incomes. We have the systems in place to help you bridge the gap from where you are to where you want to be – to help you unleash the power within you to create the lifestyle you’ve always dreamed of. FreedomRocks allows you to transcend your quest for day-to-day sufficiency and aspire to the higher calling of being a blessing to others. You can do it. FreedomRocks is the vehicle to make it happen.
Daryl Elliott, a leader in our organization, once told me, “Our goal should be progress, not perfection.” I like that. We’re better now than we’ve ever been, and the best is yet to come. We want to be here 20, 30, 40 years from now as one of the lasting giants in this incredible industry. To ensure that vision materializes, compliance is at the forefront of every decision we make. We’ll gladly sacrifice short-term gains for longevity. Build it once, and reap the rewards for a lifetime.
We wake up each morning to a world of opportunities, but how many of those are really capable of changing your life? Maybe the timing has never been right. Maybe the opportunity was too difficult or too expensive. Maybe, today’s your day.
As we continue to grow, my goal is not to make a million dollars, but to make a million friends. It’s a privilege and an honor to share FreedomRocks with people we care about, and you can be a part of it too.
Join hands with me as we reach out and touch the world. Happy fifth birthday!
